The setup and maintenance of enterprise systems are not easy jobs for developers and IT staff to undertake, and just to add additional pressure, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) also now play a part. Oracle's new platform aims to simplify these challenges.
On Thursday, the tech giant said the rapid growth of cloud-based applications in the enterprise, as well as the business desire to integrate applications with mobile technologies, has become the catalyst for increased application integration complexity. In order to meet the demands of the enterprise, Oracle has unveiled the Oracle SOA Suite 12c, the latest version of the application integration and SOA solution.
Already used by thousands of companies, Oracle SOA Suite 12c now includes cloud, mobile, on-premises, and Internet of Things (IoT) integration capabilities, hosted on one platform.
Single-click installers, new debugging and testing capabilities, templating and memory, disk, and database runtime optimization are all part of the new release. In addition, support has been added for lightweight REST and JSON integration standards, and API management has been simplified as a result of the addition of native support for these standards.
Oracle has also launched Oracle Managed File Transfer, a simplified solution for file transfers.
Other update highlights include:
- Oracle Event Processing now supports shared use of the Oracle SOA Suite user interface for Big Data filtering and correlation;
- New manageability enhancements for private cloud deployments;
- Fast data cloning for rapid deployment and testing of enterprise applications.
Amit Zavery, group vice president of Fusion Middleware at Oracle commented:
To capitalize on new business opportunities, organizations need the flexibility to use diverse solutions and environments to best meet their needs, and this can pose distinct and sizeable application integration challenges.
With Oracle SOA Suite 12c, we are helping organizations overcome those obstacles by delivering an integration platform that is specifically designed for organizations’ diverse application ecosystems. By enabling significantly simplified integration, Oracle SOA Suite 12c helps organizations speed time to market, increase productivity, and lower costs.
Oracle SOA Suite 12c is available on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and scheduled for general availability next month.
